They can mend your teeth that have been affected by decay or damage, as well as prolong the life of your tooth’s strength. Inlays and Onlays can also help to reinforce a weak tooth to enable you to enjoy your favourite foods without fear of further fracture.
Inlays are used to repair larger surface and cavities of your back teeth where plaque or even food can be easily trapped. It is one of the fixing methods to restore a tooth after an injury or decay that hasn’t affected the cusps of your tooth.
Onlays are slightly larger and can repair cavities in the central part of the chewing surface and tooth cusps, and they are made the same way as your inlays.
You will have a local anaesthetic administered to relieve you from discomfort. Your dentist will clean the affected area to prepare your tooth. Detailed impressions of your teeth will be sent to our dental laboratory to make your inlays/outlays.
